Charlize Theron: 20-Year-Olds “Have No F—kin'” Concept About Wisdom” — Hey! (VIDEO)
Words can hurt, Charlize Theron!
The 39-year-old actress has strong words about the differences between age groups when Women's Wear Daily asks her about womanhood.
"I think that women find their strength and power in their sexuality, in their sensuality within, [through] getting older and being secure within that," Charlize says. Not too shocking yet, but keep reading…
The Oscar winner continues: "It's ironic that we've built the beauty world around 20-year-olds, when they have no f—kin' concept about wisdom, what life is about, having a few relationships below [their] belt and feeling hardships, to grow into [their] skin and feel confident within [themselves] and to feel the value of who [they] are, not because of a man or because of something like that. And I think that's such a beautiful thing."
Whoa, whoa, whoa, Charlize. Didn't you mean to say "No tea, no shade"?
Aside from that burn, she does make valid points: "That's why I think people say women come into their prime in their 40s. And then for some reason our society just wants to go… It's like a dead flower. [She pulls a flower from a vase.] It's like we wilt for some reason. And men are like fine wines — the older they get, the better they get. It's such a misconception, and it's such a lost opportunity because that’s when I think women are really in the true moment of their sensuality. I can’t believe I almost killed that flower to make a point."
